Invesco announce the appointment of Henning Stein as Head of Institutional Marketing for the EMEA region. Based in Zurich, Stein will report to will report to David Bower, head of Marketing at Invesco and will be part of the distribution leadership team led by Colin Fitzgerald, head of Invesco’s EMEA Institutional Business.
Henning joins from Deutsche Asset Management where he led EMEA Institutional and Retail Marketing. One of his core focus areas has been the development of research-based marketing programmes for institutional investors. As Chair of the firm's academic foundation, he established and developed a thought leadership programme to provide clients with a wide range of perspectives and research. This helped clients develop ideas and solutions to address wider financial requirements beyond their immediate manager selection activities. In so doing, he has established a broad academic network of finance professors from institutions such as the University of Cambridge, the University of Zurich and MIT; a network that we believe will complement our ongoing activities in the institutional market. Henning holds a PhD from the University of Cambridge (Darwin College) in Business and Economics.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Carsten Majer who since 2013 has been responsible for EMEA Institutional Marketing. Under his leadership we have consolidated our institutional marketing efforts in the region and progressed our marketing activities particularly in the UK, CH, DE, AT and the Middle East. With the near doubling in size of the Cross Border retail channel over the period and corresponding growth in complexity and depth of marketing activities, I'm delighted that Carsten will have more time to focus on this critical activity”, points out Bower.
